FAQ

Do I Need To Purchase a Fishing License?

No, the fishing license is included with all fishing charters. You do not need to purchase a separate fishing license.

How Many People Can I Bring?

A maximum of six guests are allowed per trip.

Can We Keep The Fish We Catch?

Yes, you can keep any legal fish that you catch (except for sharks - sharks are catch and release only.) The Captain will clean and bag your fish for you to take home.

Where Is The Boat Located (Pick-up/Drop off Location)?

All Flowing Water charters launch from the Heron Harbor (314 Harbor Blvd, Destin FL 32541).

What Time Should We Arrive?

We typically recommend arriving at the Heron Harbor 20 minutes early to get parking situated and to walk down to the dock. Please keep in mind, you will not be able to board until 10 minutes before your start time (e.g. for a 9am trip, you will not be able to board before 8:50am.)

Where Do We Park?

Option 1 - $10 Parking right at the Heron Harbor (Simply download the "Passport Parking" app on your phone and use parking zone "2280". Then add your vehicle info and pay $10.)

Option 2 - Paid parking near the Emerald Grande (You would just walk 10 minutes East down the HarborWalk Village until you've reached us at the Heron Harbor!)

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION & REFUND POLICY?

  • Full refund if canceled 72 hours before scheduled charter*
  • No refund if canceled less than 72 hours before scheduled charter.

*4% card processing fee will not be refunded. This fee is already included in the price you pay.

What If I Need To Reschedule?

Similar to the cancellation policy, you have up to 72hrs before the start of your charter to request a reschedule. You can do so by emailing or calling us.

WHAT IF THERE ARE ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS?

Our charters go out rain or shine, however if the Captain deems it unsafe to go out (i.e. high waves, high winds, thunderstorm, lightning, etc) we’ll give you full credit to use on a future trip, or you can choose a full refund*. Otherwise, the standard cancellation & refund policies will be in place.

*4% card processing fee will not be refunded. This fee is already included in the price you pay.

What Is The Card Processing Fee?

This is the 4% fee already included in the cost of your charter. This is the fee you pay the card processing company for the convenience to make a payment with your credit or debit card. Since this is a convenience fee that you pay directly to the card processing company, and not to Flowing Water Charters, it is non-refundable.
